Getting started

2015 is moving forward and I guess I have to start somewhere. I recently purchased a book by artist Carol Marine called “Daily Painting“. There are so many wonderful things about this book!  I enjoyed her telling how she overcame her struggles to become a successful full time artist. I also love her painting style and enjoyed her sharing about her process of painting. She has lots of teaching experience and included lots of great tips. Lastly she included lots of information on websites, blogs and networking with other artists. All very clearly explained and well written. Very helpful! I’m sure I will reread it many times over as well as do the  exercises she includes.

This year I think this book is going to help me accomplish my goals which are to try to improve as an artist and to develop this blog that will grow a network and hopefully bring some exposure to potential customers.

I would love for you to join me on this journey!

About Artwithmycoffee

I live in Juneau, Alaska where the inspiration in nature abounds! I love taking photos of this beautiful place and then painting them. In 2013 I left my job in order to devote more time to my artwork. One of the ways I have been learning, is through online tutorials. I have been so encouraged with the amount of information that people share about their artwork. A few of my favorite sites are: Tuscon Art Academy on line, mhttp://thecompleteartist.ning.com/ by Richard Robinson, and http://www.dailypaintworks.com/ with Carol Marine. These have been extremely helpful as I have been working at my painting. This year my goal is to paint almost daily and to try to get outdoors more and paint en plein air (or out doors from life). I also hope to come up with something interesting to blog about it all ( =
